TMC welcomes Liz, author of the blog A Belle, a Bean & a Chicago Dog. Liz joined TMC when it first launched and ever since then she has been such an active supporter of Theta Mom! She writes about the ups and downs of motherhood, including the journey she has been on with her family while moving numerous times in the last few years. Be sure to check her out! Here is how she describes her blog in her own words:
“Like so many bloggers I’ve met, I started out blogging for family and friends before I “went public.” My husband and I seem to have a penchant for relocation, as we moved out of Chicago in June 2003 and have lived in 3 places since. Starting a blog was a way to keep everyone “back home” involved in our lives.
I feel very lucky to have chosen the name that I did back when I first started blogging. The name is based on the birth locations of my 3 “kids” – Jack was our first “baby” and we had him while we still lived in Chicago. My mom started calling Kate her “Memphis Belle” from the time she was an infant, so it came naturally that Maddie would be our Boston Baked Bean.
Being a stay-at-home mom comes with its own set of challenges, particularly when you live states away from your family. Blogging has allowed me to “use my brain” in ways that I haven’t since starting this mom gig, and has given me the opportunity to connect and share with other women across the globe.
March 2010 is when it all changed for me; March 2010 is when I joined my first blogging community!
In the last 6 months I’ve gained an entire technological & social media education as well as really great friends! I’m truly so grateful for this bloggy experience and the relationships it has brought.”
